Custom Vertical Progressing Cavity Sump Pump Provided for Oil Storage Application

When a major energy pipeline company looked to streamline their pumping system for their waste oil tanks for the temporary storage, they called on NETZSCH to design and build customized vertical cavity sump pumps for lower maintenance and opera-tional efficiencies. Along the customer’s pipeline are pumping stations needed to power the liquid fuels through the pipeline. At each pump station, there is a 5,000-gallon (19,000-liter) underground storage tank (buried below the frost line to prevent the liquid from freezing) used as a collection point for waste oil from service work that is performed on main pipeline pumps.
